Draft analysis in catia v5

Sometimes, in the case of extremely closed values, it is recommended to switch to the Quick mode to improve the color display accuracy. This type of analysis is performed based on color ranges identifying zones on the analyzed element where the deviation from the draft direction at any point, corresponds to specified values. The material is automatically seen for analysis. These two modes are completely independent. If an element belongs to an analysis, it cannot be selected simultaneously for another analysis, you need to remove the current analysis by deselecting the element to be able to use it again.
